Arnie Gunderson states in his recent interview that a decision was made in the US, at the highest levels, to deliberately down-play (i.e., cover-up) the Fukushima effects of radiation in the US.
This is really not at all surprising.
The amount of radiation coming over on the jet stream, as evidenced by the EPA's own radnet numbers, is simply health threatening.
I do not know why the decision was made to avoid educating the public on how to reduce contamination.
My guesses are the following:
Public health is NOT a priority for decision makers when financial costs are involved.
The nuclear lobby is ALL POWERFUL and their agents and pawns are strategically placed in government and lobbying positions.
Public health authorities have been selected for their leadership roles because they are malleable and will follow directions, rather than stand up for public welfare.
Very few medical doctors in the US understand the health effects of ionizing radiation, even when they are very educated on other matters (I don't think this is accidental but the reasons are too complex to explain right now)
The US west coast is the source of considerable fresh produce and fears of food panics and shortages are shaping public policy.
EXTEND AND PRETEND IS the current operating logic for all crises and looming disasters.
GUNDERSON STATES WE IN THE US ARE GOING TO FACE ANOTHER YEAR OF SIGNIFICANTLY RADIOACTIVE WASHOUTS IN THE US and CANADA
PEOPLE NEED TO BE AWAKENED!
EDUCATE THOSE AROUND YOU!
